RE: Ford factory special
Reeni on line, we have already been advised that our engine number is not one of the 11, is it possible that when this engine was first entered into a car, for on road use, an engine number may be different to a vin number on a car, is this correct?
Reeni/Den, when your engine CK17ME34040P was first installed in a Capri, sometime between August, 1972 and November, 1972, it was mated with the chassis number of the same code, ie. CK17ME34040P. At some point your engine has been separated from the original chassis, either because it was replaced by another engine or, the chassis was written off or wrecked.
Hope this clarifies your question. Terry
